Santa Sack Printables


Today I am over on Tater Tots and Jello sharing our new Christmas tradition-- The Santa Sack. I don't know about you, but it seems like each year we accumulate more and more toys.  I thought this would be the perfect solution to our problem and hopefully it will help your family out too. Each year when our elf Peter comes, he will bring this sack with him and the cute little printable attached.  I will probably work out some kind of Family Home Evening lesson to go with it so that the girls know that we have plenty and need to worry about helping others by giving what we have excess of to those who don't have much or any.  If I do anything formal I'll make sure I share it here. ;) So head over to Tater Tots and Jello to get my tutorial for making the bag, and if you are coming here from there, then here's your chance to download the printable. For the Red Printable For the Green Printable All printables and downloads designed by The Crafting Chicks are for PERSONAL … [Read more...]
